Queens gallery

Every photo you take communicates something about a moment in time – a brief slice of time of where you were, who you were with, and what you were doing.

Kevin Systrom

I would add to the quote above: “…what you thought and/or felt at that moment”.

Today I added the page “Queens gallery”. You can see it HERE. Click on the first photo and you’ll see all of them in proper sizes and colors.

I mentioned several times in my posts that we can find beauty everywhere. It is inside us and outside. There are wonderful sunrises and sunsets everywhere. There are beautiful plants, flowers, animals, birds, parks, wonderful buildings in every big city or a small town.

Beautiful nature and beautiful people are everywhere!

I hope that you’ll like something in my photos shot in Queens.

Please take a look and let me know what you liked.

Thank you!

Everyone needs it

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.

Three Russian jokes.

Tonight I received from my friend an email with Russian jokes.

Below are three of them.

– Doctor, I broke a leg in two places!!!
– Do you remember those places?
– Yes,of course!!!
– Don`t go there anymore!

*

– Doctor, every morning at seven o’clock I take a piss.

– Well, what is wrong about that?
–  I do not wake up until eight o`clock!

*

– Doctor, my husband thinks he is a racehorse.
– I can treat him, but it will cost a lot of money.
– We have the money. He has already won two races.

Walls and places

I noticed today that THE DAILY POST has a photo challenge Wall and a daily prompt PLACES.

WALL

Share an image of a wall that reveals something about a place, people, or you.

*

PLACES

Beach, mountain, forest, or somewhere else entirely?

I thought immediately that walls of our apartment in Queens tell a lot about us, our friends, relatives and places we visited

We have three paintings of our friend artist Vladimir Ryklin, several other paintings we like (including two paintings of our granddaughters) and many my photos of different places.

Below are examples what you can see on the walls of our apartment.
